First most have sold their car (massive prejudicial statement and stigmatizing generalization left in to show how easy it is for this to happen) and second how high would you have to be too call just so you can have your licence taken away.

Driving. If you use heroin or other opiates such as buprenorphine, you should inform the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). You are likely to be banned from driving. However, if you are on a supervised buprenorphine programme, you may be allowed to drive again subject to an annual review.

    This is no joke. I don't know where you are, but I have never been able to learn to drive due to being on Diazepam. My prescribing doctor reliably informed me that no insurer would cover me, no insurance equals illegal driving.

    Sorry, it's probably not what you want to hear.
